The Cincinnati Reds will stay inside the organization and name pitching coach Bryan Price the team's new manager at a news conference Tuesday, according to reports.

Price will succeed Dusty Baker, who was fired three days after the team was ousted from the postseason in the wild-card playoff by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Price has served as the Reds' pitching coach since 2010. Before joining the Reds, he spent 10 years as an MLB pitching coach with the Seattle Mariners and Arizona Diamondbacks.

Reds Triple-A manager Jim Riggleman was the only other confirmed candidate for the job.
